Today I want to share with you this Yellow Fish Card.
I CASEd my Yellow Pisces Card that I made last week. I used same layout sketch, colors, image, materials and embellishments on my both cards, but there are visible differences between them. :-D
Card layout for my both cards was a beautiful sketch Your Next Stamp, designed by Julie Elak. I really like this one! Last time I rotated the sketch, but this time I followed it.
I used scraps of 4 different blue cardstock papers I had in my stash for some time. I draw curvy shapes on cardstock scraps with pencil, cut them out and glued them together, creating Ombré Effect. I glued finished panel on a white card base.
Like last time, I used a super cute 'Keep Swimming' digital stamp (freebie) from The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS). This time I paper pieced image.
I printed three fish on white cardstock paper, colored pieces I needed in watercoloring technique using only one color (Tim Holtz´s Distressed Ink Mustard Seed), water and brush, fussy cut all pieces, colored edges with black permanent pen and glued all pieces together.
Here is a photo of all pieces.
This time I didn´t leave white border around image while fussy cutting. I also rotated fish´s eye to change it a bit. :-D
I added some transparent varnish to create glossy accents and after it dried, I added dimensional foam behind fish and placed it on the blue Ombré Effect panel.
At the end, I embellished card with homemade blue faux enamel dots. I learned how to make faux enamel dots from video tutorial by ScrapTips on YouTube. First I made glue dots with a glue gun on a backing paper and colored them with Marabu glass Dark Ultramarine color. I left them dry one day. After drying, I glued them on card with Pritt universal glue.
Card dimensions are 105 mm x 145 mm (4 1/8" x 5 6/8").
